NAME

       container-create-debootstrap - Create a basic Debian based container with debootstrap or
       mmdebstrap

SYNOPSIS

       container create -s debootstrap [OPTIONS] cnt cr -s debootstrap [OPTIONS]

       container create -s mmdebstrap [OPTIONS] cnt cr -s mmdebstrap [OPTIONS]

DESCRIPTION

       The debootstrap container creation script uses debootstrap(8) or mmdebstrap(1) to create a
       Debian based container.

       This script creates a pure Debian system with three modificiations:

       ·   apt cache of packages downloaded during debootstrap is cleaned

       ·   hostname is set (container name) in /etc/hostname

       ·   root password is set (user specified or 16 random characters)

OPTIONS

       The following script options are available:

       -n, --name=NAME
           Specify container name.

       -a, --architecture=ARCHITECTURE
           Specify the Debian architecture, defaults to the host systems architecture.

       -d, --distribution=DISTRIBUTION
           Specify the Debian distribution, defaults to stretch.

       -m, --mirror=MIRROR
           Specify the Debian mirror, defaults to https://deb.debian.org/debian.

       -p, --root-password=PASSWORD
           Specify the root password, defaults to a random 16 character password.

EXAMPLES

       Create a Debian 9 (stretch) based container with same architecture as the host system
       using debootstrap:
           sudo container create -s debootstrap -n stretch.example.net

       Create a Debian 9 (stretch) based container with different architecture as the host system
       using mmdebstrap:
           sudo container create -s mmdebstrap -n stretch-i386.example.net — -a i386
